Jean-Luc Colombo Côtes du Rhône les Abeilles Rouge 2019 (375ml, Screw Cap)
"This luminous, unoaked blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre is a consistent bang-for-your-buck introduction to a Northern Rhône heavyweight producer. It highlights delightfully fresh, juicy blackberry and raspberry flavors accented by whispers of cinnamon, anise and allspice. Soft in tannins and zippy on the finish, it's a wine best enjoyed now–2024." - Rated 90 points by Wine Enthusiast.
